I'm thinking about putting 17" x 9.5" on the back end (17" x 8" up front) of my stock '03. I'm going to be putting a 2/3 in drop on it sometime soon.

I was just wondering what kind of backspacing I'm going to need? I was also wondering how much more work (or any kind of rubbing) it would take to put 17" x 10"s on the back?

I've only found a few 9.5". Does anyone know some good places to look?

Thanks.

As fas as b/s on a 9.5 or 10 go with a 5.25" that'll work perfect. I had 18x10's in the back of my dime with that b/s and had zero rubbin issues.

I've got BC Blasters 17x8 4.5 bs and 17.95 5.5 bs with a 4/5 drop (actually 3.5/4.5). Tires are 245-45-47 and 285-40-17 and they fit perfect. I have about .5/.75 clearence in the back. Tony's sticky covers just about everything :bowdown:
